Intro

Timo Stammberger (b. 1980) is a Berlin-based photographer. He is the first to document subway tunnels in his extensive series Underground Landscapes that shows the underground architecture from major cities like New York, Lisbon, Budapest, Berlin and others.

‘Underground Landscapes’

The surprising element is that the subway tunnels that millions of people pass through every day have their own unique character, Stammberger’s photos reveal a stunning perspective on the city’s underground. The eager adventurer has discovered a broad variety of tunnels, from the dirty and old ones in NYC that were built in the 1900s, to the brand-new high-tech tunnels of Vienna, in operation since 2010. His work requires a lot of dedication: Usually, subway companies don’t allow photographers into their network and even taking photos on the subway platforms is forbidden. The underground architecture is protected by a broad variety of security measures, ranging from infrared cameras and sensors to security personnel. How Stammberger creates his photos will remain unknown for now but make sure to keep an eye out for this underrated photographer.
